10:24 am
growing outrage over the irs claims that e-mails are lost and cannot be recovered in any way. the agency blaming a computer glitch same year that lois lerner learned about the political targeting. and some congressional investigators are calling it a convenient excuse. jenna is editor at large for national review on line. ? jonna, our viewers could have
10:25 am
missed this because of coming out on friday. that is when things come out. and people don't want you to focus on. what do you make of this that the e-mails are just gone? >> it doesn't pass the laugh test. it is very rare that i will flat out say that government officials are baldly lying and the person in the press believe what people told him. i don't believe it is true that e-mails can be lost for all time because of an individual computer crashing. e-mails are out there in clouds and servers and out in theether and flying by us now. and if you smash your lap top and e-mails are lost forever strikes me as absolutely redickulous. and the nsa can save money on encryption and all you need is a good hammer.
10:26 am
>> that's an excellent point. there are no e-mails from 2011 when she first learned about the conflict and the irs said there was a computer crash. and it is unrecoverable and we kaebt get the e-mails. but we have given e-mails to the tune of $10 million. and so isn't that good enough. what dow say? >> it is more than a year than the request being made. the congressional investigators should have learned by now and only a portion of them perisin and not cred ebl. not only is the nsa in control of the content.
10:27 am
but someone will turn up your e-mails. and this is a situation where it is not only strange that some e-mails were shared with congress and other ones are being lost. and the idea there there is a federal record's act that you are in violation of. and you are intoed to back up certain documents and certain ways and you are supposed to put them on 22 separate systems and the idea of wasting the time and money and trying to call to other agencies and you received a lois 11er e-mail is not only outrageous but stupid but time for the administration to step it up. and there are questions about that. whether they can make sure they comply with an investigation. >> in the past, jonna, they will not do that. >> and where does this go from here? >> one question on what they
10:28 am
said. there has been proven wrongdoing already. we know that lois lerner started the whole thing by planting a question and lying in response to the set up question. and we know that her initial story was untrue in many important regard. and there is some smoke there. where it goes now, this is just justifiable red meet for investigators to say this is not what a administration does when it is complying. when a president of the united states said there is not a smimgon of corruption and his own department of investigation is completed there yet. >> something discovery and you can see where they take it from here. thank you so much. >> thank you.
10:29 am
>> it is not just iraq. terrorist blamed for killing dozens of people in kenya while they are watching the world cup on television. and iraq may be the top with the american blood on their hands. will that stop them from teaming up to fight the insurgents in iraq? >> the end. united states of america will have to do what president obama judges is in the interest of the united states of america. and if there is a divergence with other people in the region, so be it.

10:34 am
extremist offshoot groups. iran which is bordering iraq has an interest in stability in the region. the idea is floating that iran would supply ground troops and the u.s. would take out the extremist. and interesting because secretary of state john kerry in an interview with yahoo news seemed to love that door open. >> we are open for discussions that are constructive and contributed by iran if they are prepared to do something that is respect the integrity of iraq and the ability of the government to reform. >> reporter: republican john mccain said this is folly any idea that the u.s. can work constructively with iran. the pentagon said the secretary of state is not talking
10:35 am
coordinating militarily. but cooperation to help figure the situation out. no one has a clear handle on what just this would mean. >> the president said they are considering military option. and no air strikes yet and republicans are critizing saying he took too much time. >> reporter: republicans demapping a plan from the president saying they had the latest intelligence of what is happening on the ground in iran. and republican graham said it scared the hell out ofim of what may be next with the al-qaeda trying to get control of iraq and turned into a islamic state. listen to the chairman of the house intel itigence committee. >> we can't wait days and months to scratch our heads in a reconciliation process. we have to ask.
